"we understand that if we don't build schools, double sessions is going to happen in the next 5 years." as you heard davis mention ... if the funding isn't there ... some schools will have to
6:04 am
students through each day. that would mean earlier start times in order to double a school's capacity. and some campuses could be put on year- round scheduling. the public schools overcrowding and repair needs committee will be meeting tonight to try and find a way to avoid these scenarios. the two options they'll be looking at are either sales tax only, or a combination of sales tax and property tax. in an earlier interview ... committee chair shaun carey said that it would take about a half cent increase in our sales tax rate to raise the needed funding. "that equates to about $8 a month for a family of four. $8 a month would provide you greatly improved schools and if you did this on property tax would be about $10 a month." once the committee determines which option to go with ... it will most likely end up on the 2016 general election ballot. and since this would affect all washoe county residents ... they're hoping for input
6:05 am
info there will be time set aside for public comment at tonight's meeting ... which starts at 6 p-m. it will be in building a of the washoe county administration complex. that is located right here at 1001 east ninth street. but keep in mind that this is a big decision and could take some time to sort out. n-v energy could be getting some competition if a new political action committee gets their way. "nevadans for affordable, clean energy choices" have filed a petition, with the nevada secretary of state's office to change the state constitution and end the monopoly on electric services. the measure would also make it easier for other providers to come to the state--- and in theory--lower your electric bill. more than 55-thousand signatures are needed-- to get the measure on the ballot. ### a new push to crack down on drunk driving. federal officials are proposing lowering the legal blood alcohol limit. but would the proposal
6:06 am
here's kolo 8 news now's catherine van. mos: a lot of people drink and drive and it's bad. mos: it's not going to stop people for sure. mos: they're going to drive drunk even if it's 0.00 if slinging back a few cocktails didn't stop you from getting behind the wheel before... a new proposal by the national transportation safety board might do the job. bill: it could possibly bring in more arrests. it's asking states to lower the legal limit by nearly half from .08 to .05. in the u.s... one-third of all highway deaths involved alcohol in the last 15 years. if the states adopt the standard... they could get more funding for highways. bill: if the states don't comply with the requests, then they try to provide incentives and the incentives are usually more traffic funding. nats of blowing blowing a .05...is about the equivalent to one drink for a woman who
6:07 am
pounds... and about two drinks for a 160 pound man. or if you look at alcohol servings...a 12 ounce beer, a glass of wine or a shot is about a .02 difference....so having all three can easily put you over the limit and under arrest. bill: it varies with each individual and the amount of alcohol they drink and how their body metabolizes it, their reaction, how they're following , their vision. but even if the legal limit is lowered... lt. ames doesn't think it will make that much of a difference. bill: .15 which is almost twice the limit of what the state is now is about 70% or more of the fatal accidents are usually that involve alcohol. that was catherine van reporting a new hit-and-run law is handing down stricter penalties for drivers, who leave the scene of the crime. the law changes a hit and run-- with injuries-- to a felony. prior to october, hit- and-run drivers who left the scene, could only face a misdemeanor. "it is not worth your livelihood and your freedom if you leave the scene of an accident. own up. it gives closure to families when we can identify all the people involved in the accident, and get their side of the story as
6:08 am
if a person is arrested for a hit-and-run that happened before october of last year--- they would only face misdemeanor charge because the law didn't take effect until after that time. ### name calling... explosive claims... big time promises... campaign season is in full swing. the latest in the race for the white house as the new hampshire primary is just days away. and a scare on-board "trump force one." his campaign airplane having to make an emergency landing. coming up, lindsey matherly will have your complete forecast. that's next on kolo 8 news now.
